After helping lead Louisiana Tech to a road conference sweep in week 10, point guard DaQuan Bracey was voted as the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Men’s Basketball Player of the Week and the Conference USA Freshman of the Week.

 

Bracey averaged 17.5 points, 5.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game in the victories at Charlotte and Old Dominion, marking only the second time Tech has won back-to-back league games in a road weekend since joining C-USA.

 

The Baltimore, Maryland, native tied his career high with 14 points in the 79-73 win over the 49ers this past Thursday night.

 

The nation’s top freshman in assist-turnover ratio only had one turnover in 28 minutes against Charlotte who came in ranked in the top 35 in the country in turnovers forced.

 

Bracey proved unstoppable two days later against the Monarchs who were fourth in the nation in scoring defense, going 7-of-8 from the field including two 3-pointers to record a new career high of 21 points.

 

In the 75-63 victory, he also registered eight assists which was the seventh time this season he has recorded eight-plus assists in a single game. The eight assists put Bracey over the century mark through just 18 games.

 

He ended up shooting 62 percent from the field and 50 percent from behind the arc in the two contests.

 

This marked the second time this season Bracey has been named C-USA Freshman of the week. His first time came in week one.
